Your idle air control valve may be the problem. This device controls the idle speed. It may be gummed up with deposits. this is what it the part looks like; http://www.rockauto.com/catalog/moreinfo.php?pk=382734

you can remove it and spray it with carb cleaner to loosen up the valve or replace the assembly.
A faulty EGR valve and/or PVC valve will cause similar symptoms.

When i come to a stop the car wants to die unless u keep ur foot on the gas


Hi Wendi:
If the engine runs fine except when you don't have your foot on the gas, maybe the idle stop needs to be adjusted. With the engine off, have someone step on the gas pedal while you look at the linkage at the carb. There should be a plate with a screw in it that keeps the butterfly valve from closing completely. This can be adjusted with the engine running. (SAFETY FIRST - MOVING PARTS CAN BITE)
If the engine will only run at not nice too high RPM, chances are that the idle jet in the carb is plugged, and a carb cleaning and possibly overhaul may be needed.

Sounds like fuel starvation. 1) change fuel filter. 2) change fuel pump. GM pumps don't hold up to water in the tank (methanol fuel) very well. Its a 2003 so its probably time. Never replace as many parts as you have, without first performing an OBDII scan of the stored fault history, to avoid buying parts you don't need

Car starts running rough at idle, eventually quits running. Has new plugs, wires, cap, fuel pump, fuel filter, air filter, IAC Valve, and gas cap.


Back then, Honda suggested timing belt replacement every 60,000 miles. If your Honda has that much mileage or more and has never had the belt replaced, now may be the time.

98 Expedition..5.4L 4WD..coded bank 1 bank 2....O2 sensors..LEAN....replaced both..no change..still same codes..now it won't stay running. Tried to code again..won't run long enough to get a c


Really sounds like a vacuum leak. Lean code could still be accurate. Screaming idle usually means air is getting into engine. Ruptured EGR diaphragm would vent air. Brake booster could vent air. A lot of air will show lean mix.

You may have to use different methods to test vacuum. Some use vacuum gauge to test egr and lines which dead end into solenoids. Other tests use water spray or propane gas to draw in and change rpm. You are at a disadvantage if engine does not run.

Crankshaft sensor helps set fuel volume for given rpm. Might not be counting all the rpm's, but would not account for fast idle.

My van sedona 2005 after i stop it,it won't restart unless i press a few time on the gas pedal ,and also runs rough a bit what could be the cause of it.


May be the starter or fuel pump. Might not be getting gas after turning it off. the gas may be settling to fast into the fuel pump and none staying in the engine. My friends SUV does not start unless you pump the gas pedal. Not an expert but its what i know it could possibly be.

Your cat should last quite a while now it is replaced. I recommend testing coil packs and module. Change plugs and wires and double check your vacuum hoses.
